Don't you just hate spoilers? I do, too. That's why I always try to include warnings. However, I sometimes ramble a bit too much here or there and maybe a few (or many) key plot points slip without me giving proper notice. So I'd like to include a blanket spoiler warning for the weary internet travelers of the world: Here There Be Spoilers. You've been warned.

The Killing Kind by Bryan Smith

Bryan Smith is an author of several horror novels and an urban fantasy set of books titled Kayla Monroe: Haunted World. Even though I've been to my share of online message boards where he seems to be (I'm not a stalker, honest!)... I can honestly say I haven't read a lot of Bryan's work. I only have four of his books in my possession (only read three of them) and I'm really not too sure how many books he has written up to this point. So, no, I haven't really done my homework.

But I have read Bryan Smith's The Killing Kind and you could do a lot worse than to pick it up yourself. If, like me, you are always hesitant to pick up novels by authors you've never read before then allow me to give you a bit of a taste of what you might be in for. If you like Quentin Tarantino films, Natural Born Killers, Richard Laymon, Jack Ketchum, or Edward Lee then Bryan Smith (and The Killing Kind in particular) should be right up your alley.

I honestly don't have a complaint about this book and I'm typically very nit-picky about what I read. It's not for the weak-willed or those who can't stand a bit of blood. It's also not for those types who expect every character to be good to a certain degree, either. It seems like almost everyone in this book is a serious prick at some point. So if you are turned off by unlikable characters then this may not be the book for you. Who the hell am I kidding? This is the book for you. You don't have a choice in the matter. 

Seriously, stop what you are doing right now and get this book. 

Or else...
